Is this new agent under the same brokerage as the previous agent? I would suggest that you read your contract again before deciding to work with another realtor/brokerage.

I negotiated the mortgage lien on an investment property and entered into a contract for sale with an investor. I have recently discovered that there are a ton of city liens on the property that equate to much more than the property is valued and the investor has offered.

I want to release this property and of course the seller is trying to hold me captive. Is there an expert that negotiates these types of liens? If so who do I contact (attorney, other)? Can the buyer hold me to a contract if I can't pay off the liens?

Susie Kay answered:
Did the contract say that the realtor to pay your wife after her transaction is closed and funded? If that's the case then it will probably be a month before your wife gets paid. The house is likely under contract now but not yet sold (closed and funded). If the contract says your wife to be paid once the service is rendered regardless whether the house is sold then I would bring that realtor to a small claim court. ... more

Regardless of all of that. The Law is that you must disclose all known material facts about the property. If your house has such problems, you know and you don't tell the buyer, then you are liable. Also, it is impossible to know what 'as is' means until you do your due diligence. The Agent has a fiduciary duty to the client. We're not selling fruit here. For most people their home is their single biggest investment and equity.

Hope that helps.

A for sale by owner cannot list their home on the MLS, only an Agent can do that. When the agent lists the home on the MLS, the DOM will stay on the MLS.

Vickye Schultz answered:
Not usually, there are nonprofit orgs. that will pick up unwanted usable items. Your agent can help with names of those in your area. As far as trash goes. Get some extra yard trash bags and load them up and sit beside the trash bin if allowed in your area. If not, at least sit them by the back door for later trash pickups. No one should have trash left behind when purchasing a home. A realtor will usually assist the client on how to leave the home in a clean and orderly way for the new owners. ... more

If your home is listed on the MLS, then you should contact your Realtor. The pictures are pulled from the MLS listing. Good luck with your home sale.

Did you work with a Realtor? Did you use standard CAR forms? Such a rent back is just like any lease. You are the Tenant and the new owner is your Landlord. The same rules for security deposits apply.
I am a real estate broker qualified to advise you on California real estate matters, not the law. If you desire legal advice, consult with an attorney.
